So our wedding was on Friday June 28 🙂 – Best. Day. Ever.
Not everything went according to plan, but we made the best of it. Honestly, I was on cloud nine, nothing could ruin this day for me.
Our photographer didn’t capture EVERYTHING I wanted, but overall, we are very happy with our pictures – Mainly due to the fact that we have so many we like, that we cannot decide on which ones to frame!
It was rainy all day, which didn’t really bother me (it bothered my mom more than me, lol). My hair held up pretty good considering (have umbrellas handy as a fail safe! We kinda scrambled last minute…)
First let down: The makeup artist arrived late (I guess she had a hard time finding my mom’s house in the boonies – I don’t know – but still – almost almost 30 min. late :/)… Which led me to get in my dress late… Among other things being done late, there was no time for bridal portraits :(.
This is my biggest regret, I was too busy being in la-la land to even notice (I realized this 2 days later, lol). But, I have many great pics capturing me so I guess I can’t complain.
Next let down: The tent had walls… We had to go ahead with the tent for the outdoor ceremony. The original plan was to have a sunny day with no tent and a beautiful river in the background… But when I secured the tent, I didn’t think it would have walls, which made the background… Well, you’ll see :/
This is the backdrop we were supposed to have for the ceremony:
Oh well, so what if the tent had walls, we are married now (and dry)! We took SO many pictures in such a small amount of time. The rain drizzling everywhere (and bugs! Ugh) contributed in us hurrying the hell up! Haha
All in all, I just had to get over it (the walls and not having my bridal portraits).
I recommend to bees that they give themselves LOTS of time in their timelines, it’s better to have way too much time on your hands and relax than feel rushed. Or maybe even have the Maid/Matron of Honor (or someone else) make sure you stay on schedule. It’s a very emotional day, nothing was rational, lol.
Also, if you don’t want walls on your tent (if you are having one), make sure! Lol.
EDIT: I almost forgot!
Not even a week before the wedding, we discovered the best man/only GM/DH’s brother didn’t buy a suit. He had A YEAR to buy a grey suit… Sheesh. He ended up just going to Value Village and got something there that is more black looking than grey looking… :/ Here is how it turned out:
I got over it, but was not too impressed. What can you do?
